. >>> and a dramatic turn this week, osama bin laden's son-in-law appearing in a federal court this week in new york, very close to where al-qaeda brought down the world trade center towers. sulaiman abu ghaith pled guilty to a plot to kill americans. he was captured abroad. and the decision to take him to new york versus the facility in guantanamo bay is raising controversy. joining us, peter bergen, and jeff toobin, first, what do we know about sulaiman abu ghaith? >> well, the indictment against him, he is described as a spokesperson. and one thing the government has to do as the case proceeds to trial is show that he actually advanced a conspiracy to kill americans. didn't just advocate or just give rhetorical support. the current charges against him are pretty minimal against him on that score. although the government will have many months to spell out the case against him. >> he was the one that appeared in videos in 2001 in september, 2001, warning the west, warning muslims stay away from the united states. stay away from those high rise buildings, don't get on planes. we're coming after you.
the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. to do otherwise would signal once again that people who circumvent the system can still obtain the full benefit of american citizenship. let's see what he told chuck todd. let's listen to it. >> remember this is a proposal we attempted to put out prior to the election to create a consensus for conservatives to get in the game. because in november, prior to the election, we weren't even in the game. >> so you think it's possible that the path to citizenship may be included in the eventual bill and are you going to be okay with that? >> look. i think we need comprehensive reform. if there is a path to citizenship that has enough of a realization that we have to respect the rule of law -- >> so you pay real fines -- >> and a longer period of time. >> you know, my problem with the bushes that i think in many ways as family people and citizens they're fine. but they charm you. they've always charmed us. george sr. is very likable. w. when he was running everybody thought he was okay. i thought he was okay. i didn't kn
'm not asking my question about the president's motives. this is about the rule of law. it isn't so much about him, it isn't so much about john brennan. >> so mr. paul's fili-blizzard as it's affectionately called, joining him fellow republicans and one not from the other side of the aisle. when it was all said and done, nearly 13 hours later, paul joked about what finally forced him to leave the floor. >> i discovered there are some limits to filibustering, and i'm going to have to take care of one of those in a few minutes. i thank you very much for the forbearance and i yield the floor. >>> we all agree water has consequences. we'll bring in our thursday morning power panel. kelly o'donnell, democratic strategist angela ryan, msnbc contributor and republican strategist, susan del percent i don't. i want to talk first about what we witnessed in temperatures of the president and the idea of this chat and chew with congressman ryan. we have reply to talking about this, say the indicate is the wine and dine diplomacy what will turn around the grd lock? >> who had said he had not done enough to
passengers every day and they're rightly protesting this bone-headed change as is the federal law enforcement officers association. and how long until the nra get in and says, hey, air travelers being unarmed is a threat to their civil liberties. most of the policy change makes sense. now you can bring on board souvenir baseball bats, pool cues, golf clubs, but still no box cutters, no razor blades, no knives that don't fold and no water from outside because stuff. some said the change to allow small pocket knives comes because they're not dangerous. oh. others said small knives are hard for the tsa to detect. so allowing them lowers the tsa's failure rate. oh, that, boys and girls, is what you call moving the goalposts. the tsa's job is to make us safer. this does not do that. and frankly it contributes to my sense that they're doing this sort of kabuki theater or security theater. the faa is also not keeping us safer with the absurd continuation of the ban on using electronic devices during takeoff and landing. why can i read a book, a printed book, but not an ereader? because it emits elec
terror attack in u.s. history. now the son-in-law of osama bin laden is in the very city where al qaeda struck its deadly blow. he's now being held in new york city by federal authorities after being captured in jordan last week. cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns is coming in right now. what do you know? >> a member of the al qaeda inner circle, 47 years old, he's married to one of osama bin laden's daughter. he was born in kuwait but stripped from of his citizenship after the 9/11 attacks, though it's not clear at all how much, if anything, he had to do with the 9/11 attacks. he was taken into custody and held in jordan and apparently turned over to u.s. authorities only last week and that is how he made his way to new york. >> this is a guy who was a high school teacher in kuwait who shortly before 9/11 popped up in afghanistan and started, you know, speaking in videotapes, made a number of threatening comments and disappeared. he's had, as i'm air wa, no operation in al qaeda or in the decade since. obviously there are civil charges against him. >> he is expected to app
that those who violated the laws can remain but cannot obtain the cherished fruits of citizenship. to do otherwise would signal once again that people who circumvent the system can still obtain the full benefits of american citizenship. it must be a basic prerequisite for citizenship to respect the rule of law. now, that's a far cry from what he said last year, as late as last summer, presumably when he was writing this book, when he was seen as one of his party's most progressive voices on immigration. listen to what he told charlie rose back in june. >> you have to deal with this issue. you can't ignore it, and so either a path to citizenship, which i would support, and that does put me probably out of the mainstream of most conservatives, or a path to legalization, a path to residency of some kind. >> ron reagan, read the tea leaves for me. he seems more hardened now in his resolve against a path towards citizenship. you'd expect the reverse, i think, given the direction of his own party in the last couple weeks and months. >> yeah, it's very difficult to read him on this as you point
of the law in three ways. enforcement of the law at the border, enforcement of the law at the workplace to insure only people entitled to get a job are in fact hired and to insure people don't overstay their visas. if the administration is signaling it has no real commitment to enforcing the law, which this administration seems to be doing, then it will be very, very difficult for those people who are wary of the administration to make the other part of the bargain, namely to grant the citizenship for illegal status. that is why i think it is very problematic with respect to getting comprehensive immigration reform. maybe, i'm not going to say the white house doesn't want it because they appear to want it but if they really want it think need to be bending over backward to demonstrate to members of congress we will do everything they can to enforce the law. martha: what about the jeb bush issue, any thoughts on that he have about i let you go? >> just briefly. it seems to me was not saying a contradiction this what i'm saying before and what i'm saying now. it is all part of the grand b
we don't have a federal law that bans illegal gun trafficking. background pass should pass. shame on the congress if we can't get behind a law that has support from 90% of the american people and 80% of gun owners. 80% of gun owners think that everybody who buys a gun in this country should go through a basic criminal background check, so i think ultimately republicans will not be able to vote against that. the question is, can we pass a ban on the high-capacity magazines. a survey came out that said the majority of gun owners in our state support getting these 20, 30, 100-round magazines off the streets. i think that while all the attention has been on assault weapon ban, which is hard to pass, we can probably get a ban on high-capacity magazines through, and frankly to the parents in newtown, that would make a bigger difference in a lot of ways than the assault weapons badge. >>> chris murphy, thanks for your time today. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> here's a quick look. john kerry is on hi way back to the u.s. after his first trip abroad. kerry visited nine countries in 11
the united states, the ability to use our law enforcement capacity. >> shepard: no intention, hard to imagine. that's not a rule out, no matter what the definition of is is. we tried to get to the bottom of all of that and we'll hear more from the attorney general coming up inside fox report. well, what would you ask a woman who admits she stabbed and slashed and shot her lover to death? today, jurors in an arizona courtroom got their first chance to quiz jodi arias about the night she did indeed kill travis alexander. she admits the killing, calls it self-defense. prosecutors call it a jealous rage. today the judge rattled off question after question the jurors submitted. a practice allowed in 25 states. not common in most states. only in three. among the jurors questioned, some about the rockie relationship between arias and alexander, the --oter and the shoot ye shootee. >> did you ever take pictures of yourself after he hit you? >> no, i did not. >> how did you have time to get the gun down if he was right behind you? >> i don't know at the was right behind me or not. i just had the sense
